[Build Log] - The Big Budget Boomer Box (aka, the "BBBB") - Page 138

post #1371 of 3982
For sure man, for sure. I will post up some pics when the AX1200i is done. Here are couple of pics of the AX1200 that powers my T10 rig. The 1200i is going to be coated white as well. I plan to use both in my T10, I'm just waiting for the 700 series Nvidia cards to be released.

I know that it's hard to, but disregard the cable mess. biggrin.gif I am going to have Martin over at Psychosleeve shorten the lengths of the cables. I should of had him do that when he sleeved them for me the first time. tongue.gif



Notice the partition I made to hide the mess. biggrin.gif

Damn I'd love to get a decent macro lens for my D90, I currently have the 18-105mm one that came with it (pretty bad) and a 70-300mm one which is actually decent, I use it mainly for floorball photos with a unipod. But it's either camera or computer, no money to get good kit for both... redface.gif

I got a d3x, d90 and d4s, and yeh I got the 105mm macro f 2.5 my fave lens along with my 17-85mm.

Can't tell if that is the gloss white or the matte white from CaseLabs. If matte white...the exact powder they use is Cardinal C031-WH120 White Texture Semi-Gloss. Use it...and it is an exact match. From the pictures...your current PSU looks like a good match for the case already. What powder did you use?

Good sleeving shouldn't be hidden! Stretch that stuff out and be proud!

Are you go to change the acrylic, I think a black light tinted acrylic looks so much better and more "premium" than plain acrylic? Tell me what you think.

My current plan was to keep the acrylic windows clear...but to do some laser etching on parts of it that won't hide any components. The main reason I wanted to keep it clear...is I'm working hard to make the inside as clean as possible....and I want to show it off. Post a picture of build with black light tinted acrylic...and let me see it.

Bitspower update! I think I finally have this one in process now. Most of you will remember that a few months ago, there were some leaks of pictures of white Bitspower fittings....but they were not available yet. I began an email conversation with Bitspower asking them if they would go ahead and make some for me for this build...and in exchange, I would take a lot of pictures and show them off in this build log to help them with their launch. That generated some initial responses and interactions. But....dealing with Bitspower can be frustrating...and there would be times when I would get rapid fire responses...but the English was poor enough where I couldn't really interpret what they were saying. And then there would be times when they would go 2 or 3 weeks without responding. The white fittings ended up trickling into some online retailers....but the different types of pieces they made were EXTREMELY limited. No one carries even 1/2 the types of pieces I wanted for this build....and I don't want to have to mix and match fitting finishes.

About two weeks ago, I contacted Bundymania through FaceBook and asked if he had any tips on getting faster responses at Bitspower and/or talking to the right people to get this done. He said he also experienced large delays sometimes in getting responses....but that my best bet was to talk to Vincent...the CEO. He gave me the CEO's email address, and I started getting immediate responses. Vincent apologized for the response from the shop@bitspower.com email address and readily admitted they were severely understaffed. I sent him the list of fittings that I wanted to get in white...and of the 25+ different types of fittings I wanted....only about 5 or 6 of them were part of the existing white line they are doing. But...I gave him the link to this build log, promised lots of pictures.....AND HE AGREED TO MAKE THEM!

So....indirectly all the OCN members are responsible for helping me get these fittings...and I pass on my many thanks. I'm getting A LOT of these fittings, because I want to try some primarily fittings only connections between motherboard components, and between some of the radiators. Of the 25+ different types of fittings, they include compression fittings, 30 degree, 45 degree, 60 degree, 90 degree, Q blocks, Y blocks, extenders, adapters, multi-links, valves and d-plugs. More than 150+ pieces in total.

Vincent said all were specially made piece by piece, and one was even hand made. They will ship this week, and he promised to use the "faster" of the their two shipping methods, so....I hope to have them next week for pictures. Expect lots of them.
